With Free AVI Video Converter, it’s easy to convert AVI files to MP4 format. The converted MP4 files can be customized for portable media players and cell phones. You can convert AVI to MP4 for iPod, PSP, Zune, Nokia mobile phones, BlackBerry smart phones and other media players and cell phones that support MP4 videos.
MPEG-4 was defined by the Moving Picture Experts Group (MPEG). MPEG-4 delivers high quality of audio and video streams, especially for cell phone and broadband. Besides audio and video, MPEG-4 also supports 3D objects, sprites, text and other media types.
Zune media players can playback both MP4 and WMV videos. With Free AVI Video Converter, you can convert AVI, MPEG, FLV, VOB, RMVB and other video formats to both MP4 and WMV formats. If you want to convert movies for Xbox, which natively supports WMV, you can convert AVI to custom WMV files .
WMV is the video file format developed by Microsoft, encapsulated in the ASF container format. WMV was designed for Internet streaming applications. Both Zune and Xbox 360 use WMV codec.
AVI (Audio Video Interleave) is the most common format for audio/video data on computers. The Microsoft AVI file format is a RIFF (Resource Interchange File Format) file specification used to capture, edit, and play back audio-video sequences.
But AVI file format lacks time stamps embedded in the audio and video streams and it is not well suited for streaming video playback over Internet. So AVI is now considered to be an outdated container format. However, AVI is compatible with many existing video editing and playback software, so it’s still welcome by some people.
